Ubud is why you travel to Bali. Rice terraces, ancient temples, volcanos, a jungle full of wild monkeys, streets lined with yoga studios, spas, and healthy restaurants serving the most delicious and beautiful food you could imagine. Right in the middle of the island, I consider Ubud Bali's beating heart. Ubud is relaxed, unpretentious, and chaotically beautiful. This is not a place to party - it’s a place to meditate, contemplate, grow, explore, and learn.
